Lately I have been inspired to write poems about my dreams. A couple nights ago, I had a dream about staying with this family that consisted of a mother, her son, and his step dad. Though I did not actually see anything happen in my dream I somehow knew that this little boy was being molested by his step dad. It was like I saw this boy literally crying, for help, yet his mother just sat there in her kitchen drinking. I wanted to speak up and tell her or say something, anything, but the words would not come out of my mouth.

I donít know what came over me, but I woke up crying. Tears were falling down my face, almost as though, they were the tears of the little boy.

I donít know if this poem is any good, but I do know itís a lot more meaningful than most of the poems Iíve written. Hope you like it!


Can you really be so blind
Does a mother not have instinct
Donít you sense the silent crime
How can you just sit there, and drink

A child, your only son
Cries alone under his cover
Now what has your husband done
Guess youíre not his only lover

Please, wake up; wake up, I beg
Cuz his tears flow down our faces
Crimpled with a broken leg
He canít run to other places

Our child, your only son
The worldís only youth forgotten
Now what has his step dad done
Turned his soul icky and rotten

Do you turn the other way
Pretend the pain was never there
While this boy is not okay
Suffering and no one cares

The children, your only son
Crying out, though they feel ashamed
Now what have their parents done
Letting them carry, all the blame

Open your eyes and mouths
I plead; say what needs to be said
Even if you need to shout
Lift up the voices in your head

Our children, your only son
Lay helpless on their shattered hearts
Just look at what has been done
Speaking up is where it all starts


With God I am happy; sadness has no say in my life.
